Description


A talk with Seema Anand followed by Q&A

In the world of the kama sutra physical intimacy of any kind is about pure pleasure. If sex did not bring complete pleasure to both partners it was not worth doing. The sexual organs are referred to as organs of pleasure and there is no shame attached either to the act or to the desire for the act - any more than the tongue would be considered shameful for experiencing the delights of food or the skin for feeling the delights of touch. On the contrary it advises at great length how to explore different parts of the mind and body in order to stimulate, arouse and develop desire to ensure complete pleasure because ‘kama’ or ‘love’ in its manifold forms is one of the essential pillars of existence, it is part of the four-fold design of life.

Sex, sexuality and seduction have become such taboo subjects that we have trained ourselves not even to think of them. And in doing so we have voluntarily disabled part of our brains. What happens if you are allowed the full use of your brain, including the part that deals with seduction. And when you enter that part of the brain what happens? How do people react when they come face to face with their own desires
